2nd Technical Meeting in Angers

The General Assembly of the GOTSolar project met in Angers, 8 May 2017, accompanied by other consortium members for the meeting summing up the progress of the common work. The main aim was to discuss feedback aquired from the EC during and after the evaluation meeting, as well as to discuss the results and achievements, and state the directions and plans for the next months. The meeting was held in Angers to faciliate participation and support of the consortium in the 3rd French Days of Hybrid Perovskites.

GOTSolar’s mechanoperovskite at Hannover Messe 2017

In May 2017 executors of GOTSolar from IChF PAN in Warsaw were participating in Hannover Messe 2017 – one of the most important events taking place yearly to exchange new technology and propagate innvoations in Europe.

Meet CNRS lab members!

Laboratoire Aimé Cotton is based in Orsay, France, and has huge expertise of hybrid perovskites: optimization and optical properties of the material, introduction of the material in vertical microcavities working in the strong coupling regime in the framework of polaritons lasers. Meet people from CNRS LAC who are implied in GOTSolar.

Articles in popular science journals

Apart from disseminating the project results in scientific publication, GOTSolar executors communicated a broader idea behind perovskite solar cells and solar energy in general by publishing in popular science journals: La recherche and Sciences Ouest

Lecture of Prof. Jacky Even at IChF PAN in Warsaw

As a part of GOTSolar promotion and communication of its results, Prof. Jacky Even gave a lecture entitled “Properties of 3D and 2D Ruddlesden-Popper halide perovskite semiconductors” for the general scientific audience at the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

1st General Assembly Meeting in Lausanne

The General Assembly of the GOTSolar project met in Lausanne, 9 December 2016, accompanied by other consortium members for the meeting summing up the first year of the common work.

E-MRS Fall Meeting

The European Materials Research Society (E-MRS) was established in 1983 through the initiative of individual European Materials scientists in order to enhance the links between materials science and industry and to provide a voice for the materials community. Its annual Fall Meeting provides the opportunity to exchange ideas, expand one's knowledge and make new contacts. The conference will consist of 23 parallel symposia and a plenary session and provides an international forum to discuss recent advances in the field of materials science. The conference will be augmented by an exhibition of products and services of interest to the conference participants. For more information visit the general website of E-MRS Fall Meeting.


Registration is possible at the general website of the Fall Meeting. Direct link for submitting your abstract is here. Before registering please have a look at practical information including Fees, Timeline, and Travel details.


The conference will take place at the ancient campus of Warsaw University of Technology in the heart of the town, walking distance from central railway station.

GOTSolar executors explaining perovskite technology for French TV

A television appearance was made by Jacky Even and Claudine Katan (CNRS/INSA/ISCR Rennes) at a local French (Breton) TV broadcast, «Fête de la science» in October 2016. Title of the short program was “Les pérovskites pour le photovoltaique”.
